The deployment was endorsed by Los Angeles City Councilmember and mayoral candidate Eric Garcetti. It is part of a program announced one year ago, by which Honda became a Zipcar preferred vehicle manufacturer with a focus on hybrid and electric vehicles.

“Zipcar’s operation in Hollywood is easing parking congestion, reducing air pollution and putting people to work,” Garcetti said in a Zipcar release.

The 2013 Fit EV has a U.S. EPA combined adjusted mile-per-gallon-equivalency rating of 118 MPGe1. A 20-kilowatt-hour lithium ion battery powers a compact 92-kilowatt AC synchronous electric motor. Zipcar states maximum single-charge range as 60 miles.

The Fit EVs for Hollywood are based at two locations on Sunset Boulevard, in commercial buildings managed by Paramount Contractors & Developers.

Zipcar said it plans to add more Honda EVs this year.
